Chocolate Milk Mix

In my quest to change our diet to a little bit healthier, I ran across a chocolate milk mix recipe. It still has a ton of sugar, but it's a step up from the Nesquik (or comparable brands) that have chemicals, preservatives, and other nonsense mixed in.

The recipe that I used is:

1 1/2 C Powdered sugar (see what I mean?)
1/2 C dark cocoa powder

I made sure that each of those were singular ingredients, and just mixed it up with a fork.

The results were mixed. The kids said it has a good flavor, but it didn't mix very well at all. It made a weird, foamy dome at the top of the cup. They had to use a tiny whisk to get it mixed up. It was fine in the sippy cups because I could just shake it up really well, but in regular cups it didn't work so well. When this batch is gone I want to find a sugar that will mix better and isn't refined sugar.

  1. Try baker's sugar - it's very refined sugar used for donuts and the like. It's easier to mix and dissolves well.
